A SOLUTION WITHIN A DAY
Finding space fast when you are facing an unexpected purchase is not uncommon in warehousing. It’s then nice to know that you found an immediate solution with Stockspots. This is also the experience of Christian van der Sanden of Lampdirect.nl.
Temporary space shortage
Christian works as Logistics Manager for Lampdirect.nl. “The strong growth of the organisation resulted in more purchasing volume, where the warehouse was suddenly challenged in warehouse capacity through the purchase of 300 extra pallets. This resulted in a temporary lack of space of approximately three months in our own warehouse, we required space to move.”
Previously a quest
Christian started looking for more space via the usual way, but the lack of offers and the long-term contracts provided a tough search. One major requirement of Lampdirect was that the warehouse had to be nearby. This is because Lampdirect offers the guarantee that, if you order before 11 pm, you get the product delivered to your home the next day. Being able to take action immediately is therefore of major importance.
Flexible and fast
A purchasing colleague of Christian recommended Stockspots and after a phone call Christian got three offers from local warehouses that same day. The choice of the best price was soon made and the next working day the first full trailer was already on its way. “External renting is of course always more expensive (transport and handling) than having your own storage, but the Stockspots price was similar to the costs of the neighbour we usually turn to with overflow. This is a great solution!”
“WHEN IT CAN BE PREDICTED THAT STORAGE IS ONLY TEMPORARY, THEN STORAGE VIA STOCKSPOTS IS FANTASTIC, ESPECIALLY IN VIEW OF FLEXIBILITY AND SPEED.”
